Wow, it’s been a long time since my last tasting note! For a while tea making seemed like more of an effort than it actually is, so I pretty much only drank my usual morning bagged black. Now I’m getting back into it again – the cooler weather is certainly helping to motivate me!
Picked up half an ounce of this on my last visit to the US to help with my indigestion that I occasionally get for no obvious reason. The taste & smell are a bit unusual but nice, but then again I kind of like weird herbal/medicinal concoctions. I’m generally not a fan of stevia in blends, but it meshes really well with all the other components and provides a pleasant sweetness. One thing I don’t like is that it’s making the tip of my tongue feel kind of numb-tingly, but that could be due to the long steep (7 minutes is probably too much for this one).
I haven’t yet finished the mug and I’ve already stopped burping, so I guess it’s working? I might get this again!
